About this item
On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. Certain to be a failure on the marriage mart, Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.
A Scottish sweetheart who was handsome, honorable, and de-voted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.
Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He's wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.
